TAMPA, Fla. - Reality TV star and former pro wrestler Hulk Hogan is suing a Tampa Bay-based disc jockey, the DJ's ex-wife and a New York media group over a sex tape.

According to a news release sent by a publicist, two lawsuits will be discussed during a news conference on Monday afternoon near the federal courthouse in Tampa.

Hogan said he was illegally taped having sex with the ex-wife of DJ Bubba "The Love Sponge" Clem without his consent six years ago. The video of Hogan and Heather Clem was leaked to the online gossip site Gawker, which posted portions.

Hogan has sent a cease-and-desist letter to Gawker, which has not removed the video.

It's unclear who leaked the tape to Gawker.

Hogan's real name is Terry Bollea.
